Todmorden – upstairs at the Golden Lion – PRETTY LIGHTNING + BRIDGET HAYDEN + IRMA VEP – Friday 30th October 2015
Our dear friends Tor Bookings have put together this simply blazing line-up and what I could do put hassle them until they agreed to let me DJ.
Headliners Pretty Lightning are a dazzling German psyche duo who are both members of the collective Datashock. Bridget Hayden should need no introduction after all the incredible live sets she’s performed in the valley in the last few years. Irma Vep played Tor Fest last year at the intimate Bare Arts show that I couldn’t go to.
£5 on the door
Was Ist Das? and White Rabbit Promotions are teaming up to bring you a dazzling night of psychedelic rock upstairs in Krazy8s the fully formed venue upstairs at the Golden Lion in Tod.

Todmorden – Unitarian Church/Golden Lion – TOR IST DAS? FESTIVAL – Friday 14th to Sunday 16th August 2015
Was Ist Das? will be moving to Phoenix Arizona this Winter so as the start of our farewell, we are doing a festival in collaboration with out dear Todmorden friends Tor Bookings. We have some major headliners, with Saturday night being topped by a trio of Andrew Liles (Nurse With Wound), Maniac (Mayhem) and Carl Stokes (Cancer) and then on Sunday we have both Newcastle’s man of the moment, alt folkie Richard Dawson and Leeds noise rock institution Ashtray Navigations.
Also playing are dark chanteuse Chicaloyoh, instrument builder Sam McLoughlin (aka Samandtheplants/N.Racker), Bird People (full band set, folk drones), Lutine, Laura Cannell, Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura (Manchester noise rock orchestra), Girl Sweat (stockton’s one man collision between Jon Spencer & Cabaret Voltaite), Daniel Voight (analogue experiments in sound), Terrine (Claire from Headwar’s solo no wave assault), Flamingo Creatures (wild improv insanity), Ambrosia(@) and Isnaj Dui (Katie from The Owl Service & The Sly And Unseen).
Delighted to be DJing in Nottingham for this very fine gig from the Rammel Club people. On the bill are Ruth and Ronnie from German collective Datashock aka Flamingo Creatures. Their live sets are a wild, Dadaist explosion of noise and sound. With the help of electronics, bells, a violin and various percussion instruments the couple develops musical dialogues that speak to you in the most handsome way one can think of. Like Hans-Joachim Roedelius waltzing with Joan La Barbara while Smegma play (quietly) in the back.
Also on the bill is Daniel Voigt, the artists formerly known as Hering Und Seine Sieben Sachen, and head of Sic Sic Tapes. Augmented by effect pedals & mixer treatments Daniel Voigt blends a Musique Concrète approach (cutting up tapes and looping sounds with the help of several walkmen) with the cosmic aesthetics of Krautrock to make his music sound like the love child of Delia Derbyshire and Klaus Schulze. Both these acts are headed North to play our Tor Ist Das? Festival.
Yerma Mansa were to have played too but had to cancel. Perhaps some surprise may take their place? If not, you’ll get even more of me DJing
Tickets on the door only – £6 waged / £4 unwaged
